Their Lies Were Mocking God

I heard a piece on NPR yesterday about the contracting and sub-contracting of debris removal in the aftermath of Katrina. I don't remember the exact number, but there was about 7 or 8 levels of subcontracting. The initial bid got $23 a cubic yard, and by the time it got down to the last level of contracting, the company doing the actual work was getting $3 a cubic yard. This is your Republican controlled, "Conservative" government at work.

Should the federal government insist on paying $37 per cubic yard to whomever does the work, or what?

Could you explain your problem with the subcontracting with a tad more clarity?
